You're looking at the screen size the wrong way. New phones have (almost) no chins, so their actual size (footprint) is smaller than what appears to you. Pixel 4a, for instance, is just slightly bigger that the S3. 12 mini is, in fact, smaller than the S3 (see link below). I can't comment on how much you should spend on phones, but that fact that you are still holding on to the S3 is quite telling. https://www.phonearena.com/phones/size/Google-Pixel-4a,Apple-iPhone-12-mini/phones/11311,11333
Thanks, but unfortunately the Pixel 4A is nearly 6". I'd prefer something Galaxy S3 size, or maybe even slightly smaller. The choice of phones even at the Pixel's size is pathetic. I can't understand it. The Pixel is also quite expensive for my purposes. I was thinking more like £150-200 or even slightly less, rather than around £300.
It's weird how perceptions change. I was an early owner of the Ericsson P800 and P910 (I seem to recall paying around £30-50pcm for various contracts with literally megabytes of WAP - in fact I once ran up a £100 data bill for some paltry amount of excess data and back then £100 was a lot more than it is now).So many people back then scoffed at the "huge brick" I was carrying. Seriously.
Sounds like Renewed takes a bit more care than Amazon Warehouse (where it seems like it's a squirt and a wipe/power on/put Warehouse sticker on the box - mail it back out), though I've had pretty good luck with mobile phones and Amazon Warehouse. Last purchase was a disaster but I was able to RMA it :S
It was short lived but a great post and deal (y) .
Would a casual gamer notice the difference between Intel i5 and AMD Ryzen 7? Ordered the Intel I5 version yesterday for same price - is it worth switching (confused)
Whilst I agree with your sentiments, you are probably posting this from a device which has quite a lot of components made in China. I know its virtually impossible to buy something without something chinese in it though.
You'll have to provide a list of alternatives then.
It's not a case of support - it's a case of where else you can get a competitive laptop these days that wasn't manufactured in the Middle Kingdom. Suggestions please.
Just received this from Laptop Outlet today, was on hotdeals a few weeks back for ,£749. Real nice laptop although to be fair anything would be coming from our i5 2nd gen Acer we bought in like 2011 or something
I would of expected a stylus / pen with this, not as a possible optional extra but in the price.Saving greasy finger prints all over it.
New Samsung Galaxy book Pro 360 does have stylus and touch screen. Also has latest 11th generatio processors and very light weight. But expensive....
Would it be better to get a 14 but i7 versus this in an i5?
HOT!!! I got this laptop from very for £1100 a few months back and it's well worth it imo. The single issue with this laptop is the webcam placement, apart from that it ticks all the boxes for me.
Anyone know what’s the return policy like for Huawei store? Do I get delivery fee refunded? I bought £30+£5p&p AX3 from other deal as dedicated AP for Quest VR airlink. But it performs far worse than my current 5+ years old AC68u. Pure speed is faster on supported device, but I get micro-stutters with this Huawei router and Quest within direct line of sight. Microstutters ruin whole VR experience. The web management UI is also horrible and locked down compared to Asuswrt-merlin. So not for me as my main router.
I got these when they are 3 for 140 put in each room for mesh system but with slow speed they actually cut my broadband speed to half and range is not good at all compare to my Vodafone broadband router i think i need powerline to connect them alltogether
Maybe, maybe not - sent them back problem solved
You are completely wrong here, I am afraid. I have my AX3 sitting behind 2 other routers (Draytek for WAN aggregation and GL.iNet for VPN) and so really triple NAT situation (not to mention the added VPN restriction). I have not had a single problem with the functionality of the AX3 despite my setup. You must be doing something awfully wrong here.
It needs to see the internet, a lot of people put their routers in modem mode to get them working as intended - I have a double nat network behind a vpn and Untangle UTM which they don't like, they won't even set the time correctly unless they can see a direct connection to the internet. Probably not a standard network setup but it's secure.
Windows as shown by photos 4, 5 and 6. If you mean which version of Windows then it's likely to be Home possibly Pro. And yeah it's strange. There's no mention of Windows on the page.
Just been to Curry's to have a look at this kind of laptop, to see what they look like in real life They only had the 13" in store, but it was one of the best looking laptops there. One thing that really stood out was the screen, almost no bezel. Made all of the others with plastic or and black bezel/dead area look awful in comparison. Do the 13/14/15 matebooks all have the same type screen design? Also the body of the one I saw looked almost blue, is that the 'grey'? Unfortunately they didn't have the Yoga slim to look at and compare, I wanted to see the orchid colour in person
What's the OS on this? Doesn't appear to be mentioned which seems strange!!
From the link above: HUAWEI MateBook D 15 AMD Ryzen 5 / 8GB / 256GB / Multi-Screen Collaboration / Non-Touch / Space Grey.
Hi @Alexandru thanks for sharing your first deal :) some good feedback on price / product from other members in comments so it would be great if cold voters could share their feedback on why they feel it's a cold vote deal
So whoever votes cold maybe should add that to the comments ? Isn't that what these are for ?!
It's because you can often get them new from Huawei store for this price, or slightly higher but with a free huawei fit band. So it's not really a discount.
Same here. 😁 (y) They are very well reviewed and I am really impressed with them.
Cos they paid for over priced apple airpods (nerd)

Mines arrived . One small mark on screen rest is mint. 174 quid so result. Well chuffed and the crystal colour is amazing
I got my mine from Smartmobiletech yesterday. Grade B, the screen was pitted with marks plus a scratch on the bottom of the screen. The battery was also draining crazy fast. I'm returning. Seems i was unlucky
Gone for a grade c crystal from mywit. Previously ordered a grade b for a friend and it was mint. Will report back .
Just a quick update. My grade B arrived from Mywit and I can't see a mark on it either. Making me think I should have gone for a grade C as I am almost frightened to use this pristine one. Just setting it up... Nova Launcher set and busy copying data over. Very pleased. Thanks plewis00.
I always bought grade C and never had an issue with mywit (if that’s who you meant). I figure that as long as there’s no major damage like chunks out of the glass or deep scrapes, it just saves me having to mollycoddle the handset and just spend time enjoying using it.
TBH battery life was the most important thing to me as was replacing a chromebook and had got used to long life. The Ryzen/14 is so much better in that respect. I get around 10 hours if I'm just browsing.
No doubt a Ryzen 4000 gen is a better CPU than an i5, however, for me personally the dedicated GPU is a good addition to Intel CPUs. But I agree, yours is better.
The 14 I bought is a Ryzen 5-4600 and at the time the 13 had a relatively outdate i5. The difference in size is not great - I briefly owned a 13 before returning it for this 14 on a better deal.
The battery on the 14 inch model is better, with regards to the CPU, don't know what to say, as I am assuming they both come with different CPUs. The 14 inch indeed has an extra USB A port and a HDMI, while the 13 inch is more portable, slimmer and lightweight. If I was to find them with the same CPU at the same price, I would go with the 14 inch I think, but if there is a £50 difference in price, I would go with the cheaper one.
Also this available for £499.20 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/HUAWEI-Matebook-2020-13-Laptop-i5-Grey-REFURBISHED-GRADE-A-/353290056555?_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49286
I got it for 350 quid when the 30 percent off warehouse items sale was on. I love it. Pity can only take charge off the right hand USB-C port.
Great price for the 2k screen version. People are missing a bargain here.
This is £700 at Amazon, not that is worth that price. I personally believe this is a good deal. Huawei 13 is more premium than 14 and 15 inch and it has a great screen. Yes, there are better CPUs out there, but this is not a bad price if you're after a premium built, good look, compact ultrabook with a good screen. To make it even better, this has dedicated graphics. While MX250 is an entry level, still better than nothing, and more important, it will not use the existing RAM for the graphics. I voted hot, I really believe this is not bad! You compromise on specs when you look at ultrabooks and I don't think there is much compromise on this one. The description is quite poor and this may be one of the reasons the votes are cold. This is 2020 model MX250 dedicated GPU Only 1.3kg Metal built 2k 2160x1440 screen Usb c and backlit keyboard
These guys are just rude and helpful which doesn't help their cause Also have to watch out for the non existent accessory charge as it's just a USB cable (the non accessory ones go OOS pretty quick) to justify charging £30 extra. No charger, case or even a Sim tool. Another borderline breach of description specs. A USB isn't £30 extra. Ridiculous.
That's the risk of running a online business I guess , if it's genuine you can't refuse postage refund
I've been using PayPal to pay for my returns (if you use PayPal to pay for items). Any online shop, not just eBay.
Such a great device if you don't rely on Google. Even after installing using Googlefier, notifications for apps like Ring don't work.
